Need help to find best handlebar for my Trek Madone 54cm frame. I'm 5.84 ft tall (1.76 mt).. Actually I have a Bontrager RXL carbon handlebar, 44mm wide, but kind of feel it a bit big for me. I have a 90mm stem, planning also to change for a 70 or 80 mm stem.
My concern is if there is a standard size of handlebars by a given frame size?? For example bike companies built a 52cm frame with a 40mm wide handlebar, and a 54cm frame with a 42mm handlebar??
Sorry for my ignorance, but I have searched for this answer and haven't find a positive answer..
Thanks for ur comments

42 cm is roughly standard size, but if you have wide shoulders you may need a bigger bar. The local bike shop is the best place to start. They can measure you and ensure you get the best fit. Other than that there's riding style and personal preference. Some prefer ergonomic bars, while others prefer more of a classic shape. Depending on how wide you are they'll probably suggest 42-44 cm bar.
